Visiting the Museum

The Museum has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19; however, we cannot guarantee that you and your party will not be exposed if you choose to enter the property. As set forth in state guidelines, while these guidelines have allowed the Museum to open as safely as possible, the risks to visitors cannot be fully mitigated.  The Museum of African American History assumes no liability for this potential exposure.
So that the Museum can safely remain open, we require that all visitors follow the safety guidelines outlined below.  The Museum reserves the right to ask visitors who do not follow these guidelines to leave the Museum’s premises.

The Museum is committed to providing a safe environment and asks for your help in making this a great experience for everyone.
